How can I make IR remote that will be inside my phone????
Asked by PavleP 3 years ago | last reply 3 years ago
I really really really hate infrared remote controls. When I'm sitting comfortably, I always have trouble pointing it just right. Of course I realize this is probably an issue with my setup, but it wouldn't be an issue if the remote used Bluetooth. So I figured I'll write an Android remote control app that pairs with a little Bluetooth box that has an infrared led pointing right at the decoder. Thing is, the programming is no issue, but I haven't built anything more involved than an AV-switch box in the last decade. So I'm hoping someone can give me some guidance on using off-the-shelf components to pair/send/receive Bluetooth commands and decode them so I can flash the little infra-red LED. I'm perfectly happy to handle storage and all the other requirements on the phone.

I have an idea for a project, and I am trying to figure out a simple mechanism or valve that will be able to release fog produced by water and dry ice into a relatively small diameter tube. I would like it to be activated via remote, but other ideas are appreciated. My plan is to have a sealed container with water and dry ice on my back. Tubing would lead from the container to a mask I'm constructing. I am just trying to figure out a way in which I can control the release of the fog.

Someone can advice me what switch is suitable to use in my remote control. I had tried push button however it does not compatible with the coding (I'm using chipkit UNO32). My intention is to make the user select AUTO mode or MANUAL Mode. After selecting, the user will be asked to select speed and duration. So this requires a lot of loop-inside-a-loop, if-inside-if etc. When I'm using push button, the microcontroller cannot read the command when the second button is push. I heard, if using push button I need electronic relay.

I would like to build a small lockbox to which I could remotely provide access. For example, I leave the box at a property. At a later date, an employee is in the area and we would like him to access the property without having to make a trip back to the home office to pickup the keys. We provide him a one-time access code and he retrieves the key. I recently discovered how much fun Raspberry Pi DIY projects are and this seems like an ideal candidate for my next challenge but I have to confess I am still a total neophyte to all this with no real notion as to the best way to move forward. I would welcome any suggestions or ideas. I also realize my definition of the problem might be more vague than is ideal but given my lack of confidence vis-a-vis which details are relevant, I thought it would be more productive for me to answer questions rather than post a giant wall of useless information - which is my long-winded way of saying, please do not hesitate to ask me any questions if they'll help get me pointed in the right direction.

Hi, I have a remote for my fireplace. It uses a RF of 303.87 mhz. I was trying to think of a way to build something that could recieve a message over wifi that would then trigger the 'buttons' on the remote. I found some RF receiver/transmitters but everything is for 315 or 430 mhz. Will those work for 303.87? Or was this remote designed to not be easily cloned?

I'd love to make some throwies that can be remotely controlled. At a minimum I want to turn them on and off, colour and brightness change would be fantastic. What's are the options for doing this - what's the cheapest, lightest, smallest way to control them remotely? Some kind of RFID and switch? Is this going to drastically raise the price from about $1 a piece, or could it be done cheaply? How many could feasibly be controlled at once?

Hi :) I will try make this short. I´m a taxi driver in Denmark and have a little problem. When a customer calls for a cab I receive it on my screen and press a button to accept it. I have 10 sec to press accept and if i´m not sitting in the car then i take my remote receiver that makes a sound so i can jump in the car and press accept. Most of the time i don´t make it to the car because i only have 10 seconds. So i could really use a little thing to press the button for me. It could be something that reacts to the sound and clicks the button, or it could be an extra receiver/transmitter that i press manually. The button is almost like pressing a keyboard button and it doesn´t matter if it its pressed without me getting an order.

Not looking for an automatic door such as where the dog's RFID gives auto entry, but looking for a way to keep my dogs in my house when I leave via my car in the garage. Looking for some type of remote controlled thingamajig to keep their doggy door closed or secured while I'm in my car pulling out of the garage, and then once my garage door is closed give them access to the garage. Only a problem when I leave for the day, when I return at night they're so happy to see me they're not in a mood to go run off when the garage door opens.
I have a wireless remote for the airconditioning that will only allow 1 days on off progamming at a time. I want to create a new remote that can send the same information daily automatically so that I can save energy when im not at the site. Anythoughs or hacks possible. I have a spare remote I can sacrifice if necessary. Thanks in advance for any help.

Could anyone suggest how to build an electronic system for using a radio signal to turn on and off another circuit. what i mean is a transmitter with a button you could hold and press a switch and a reciever in the circuit you want to switch on and off which prevents power reaching the circuit unless you are transmitting. i would want to be able to transmit over atleast 20 metres and through thin walls, aluminium foil and clothing. thanks.

Hey everyone. I have a question about a linear actuator that I'm putting on my sawmill to control the throttle. On a sawmill you either need to be full throttle or idle. I've already got the actuator mounted and it works great. Now I need a controller for it. I've got a keyless remote from a auto parts store that I would like to use. I also would like to have a hard wired button. The kicker is that I would like to be able to push a button on the remote or the wired button and the actuator go all the way out. And then push the same button and it come all the way in. The actuator has built in limit switches so it will stop on its on either all the way out or in. This may not be feasible for me to do but I was just thinking by using relays it may be. If I can't use just the one button then I'll have to use two. There should be no need for a stop button since the actuator has a limit switch at both ends. Thanks

Hi,I hope this question is appropriate to this forum, I'm new here, but I'm about to start building a PolarLights 1/350th scale Enterprise. If you're unfamiliar with the kit, it's styrene, large and very cool. Get one to express your innner geek.Anyway, I want to hang it using steel wires, painted flat black and it will be displayed against a black background, with the illusion, I hope of it floating in space. I plan to run power to the model via the wires, like those little track bar lights you might find in a coffee shop.All the electronics for the ship will be inside (it's a big kit) and I have the schematics to make the lights blink and the photon torpedos fire. But I don't want the torpedoes to constantly fire. I'd like to be able to push a button and have them fire. But with only three wires going to the model, I can't control the navigation lights, strobes, impulse engines, spotlights, etc.I could install DIP switches in some inconspicuous spot, but how much cooler and geekier to trigger the effects from an infrared remote control shaped like a tricorder?I have found a company that sells a remote (I'll have to hack it into a tricorder), a sensor and a PIC preprogrammed chip to decipher the remote codes (http://kitsrus.com/pdf/k92.pdf), but the schematic shows that all the outputs are high. Pressing a button on the remote sets the appropriate output low.So, can anyone suggest what I can do to trigger the effects? They sell a more expensive and I'm sure much heavier kit with relays (http://kitsrus.com/pdf/k142.pdf) that actually reverses the outputs -- pushing a button sets an output to high -- using inverters. (They also sell a kit with four relays, using a UHF transmitter -- a car remote.)But I'd like to do this without a relay. I know very little about electronics -- just enough to follow a schematic and wire it, hoping there are no mistakes in the schematic. But I thought a transistor, like an SCR thyristor, could be used as a switch. Could I take the first kit I mentioned, add the inverter to switch the output to high when a button is pressed, and use the thyristor to basically be a solid state switch? Essentially doing the work of the DIP switches?I fear the 5V outputs of the PIC module would be too high for the thyristor and maybe that's why the relays are necessary.I appreciate any help and advice.JenniferPS All the kits I mentioned are at http://kitsrus.com/kits.html

I'm a real Noob to this electronics thing (but I find it fascinating..). Anyway, I want to try to build a device that beeps. The duration of the beep is fixed, but the frequency and pitch should be variable, depending on user input. The whole device should be as small as possible and water proof. I would prefer to be able to control the beep frequency and pitch remotely - perhaps from a mobile phone or from something like a remote controller. The beeping unit should be kept simple as possible. Any ideas on how I can achieve this? Thanks, Yossi

I have a 6 Volt radio frequency remote control pair and a separate board with a 5 to 12 Volt timer circuit that turns power off to a load after 1 to 300 seconds. The timer circuit uses capacitors and resistors including a variable resistor plus a 555 too plus jumpers from Amazon.com to see a picture,it lists as: GEREE Timer Relay Switch 1-300 second 5V 9V 12v DC input TIME OVER RESET Delay. Will it work if I connect the RFRC to power and then from there wire to the timer and then wire the timer to my load so that I can remotely make the timer circuit operate my load for the set time? I ask so as not to burn a thing that takes weeks to get. Will the 1 channel remote control receiver's single relay reset back into a NO condition from NC after current stops flowing from the battery power and through he remote control's 5 pin relay into the capacitor(s) of the timer circuit, that is to say, will the remote relay reset to NO after the timer's single relay goes back from NC to NO after the capacitor(s) run out of charge? As a note, I have had very little success finding a remote controlled timer in the 6 Volt range. 12 Volt remotes with timers are easier to find but that is too much power, size and expense for my application. Know of a supplier? If I have enough of this correct to make sense then any wisdom in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Vince
